6 Michigan mayors pledge to support Paris climate change accord

Six Michigan mayors have pledged to uphold the Paris Agreements, days after President Donald Trump announced the U.S. would withdraw from the international agreement designed to curb climate change.

Hamtramck Mayor Karen Majewski is the latest Michigan mayor to lock arms with a group of mayors who say despite the President’s wishes, they will continue to fight climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The group is called Mayors National Climate Action Agenda or MNCAA. The mayor in Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Royal Oak, Rockwood and Buchanan, Michigan have all joined the coalition.

“Hamtramck may be a small place, but our commitment connects us to a worldwide movement, in which we all progress together toward a cleaner, healthier, and more viable future,” said Majewski in a written statement.
